Rose & Jones Senior Leasing Manager, James Maxwell, highlights 5 key points to achieve a seamless leasing transaction.

The Leasing Agent

  • Shows proven ability & passion
  • Provides relevant timely info to Landlords & tenants
  • Negotiates, not just facilitates
  • Has exceptional communication skills
  • Closes deals with tenacity

A Property Face Lift

  • Apply a fresh coat of neutral colour paint every 7-10 years (subject to tenant turnover)
  • Improves feel, perception and quality which equals better tenants
  • Costs can be off-set (tax/depreciation)

Professional Photos & Floor Plan

  • Makes a better first impression
  • Helps potential tenants visualise themselves living in the property
  • Keeps the property listing up to date, as improvements occur over time

Consider Pets

  • 60% of Australians own a pet
  • Renters value their pets like family and are more likely to maintain the property to keep the animal on the premises
  • Rose & Jones safeguard your asset and include pet clauses in our leases
  • Screen pet applications (registered, de-sexed, references, age, sex, weight, strata approval)

Timing

  • High demand for leasing is between mid-January to end of April
  • Negotiate leases so they end in the “high demand” period e.g. if a client secures a property in the month of August, negotiate an 18 month lease so it ends in February during the “high demand” in the event they wish to vacate
  • Application review speed must not be delayed
  • Respond to all enquiry in a timely manner
  • Most popular lease periods are 12 months
